We do what venture capital firms do and more. We find startups that may have incredible potential, perform complete due diligence, and enable our investors to purchase an equity stake in these companies with online investments. But that is where the similarities end.
What makes abela investments different is that we are a full service online platform for venture capital investments that is open to the public. We take the best parts of Venture Capital (connections, research, deal flow, mentoring, money management) and combine it with the best aspects of Equity Crowdfunding (open access, ease of use, diversification) to give investors the best of both worlds.
Gone are the days when you needed a personal invitation from a friend just for the chance to risk $100,000, at a minimum, on a single deal. abela investments has turned that model on its head. We match startups seeking capital with angel investors looking to invest as little as $3,000. And as a FINRA-registered broker-dealer, we are there to assist you every step of the way through the startup investing process.
We have been a Venture Capital Investment Bank for 3 years, and in that time have completed over 160 raises, helped companies raise over $85M, and already have had successful exits, led rounds, and taken board seats. Our veteran team is experienced and well respected in venture capital circles; we have successful startup investing experience and several large exits.
